The Kirribilli to Cremorne Walking, Cycling and Streetscape Upgrades currently on public exhibition closes Monday 14 June, so it’s time to respond and we need your support.
This project is funded by Transport for NSW under their Active Transport grants program but if people don’t respond to this exhibition it’s most likely that none of these safety improvements will go ahead. So please go to https://yoursay.northsydney.nsw.gov.au/kirribilli-cremorne-walk-cycle and submit your response or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please state that you support this project, even if you have suggestions for further improvements or prefer an alternative option for specific sections.
This bike route is very popular with experienced bike riders as a route to the eastern side of the Harbour Bridge Cycleway, but it’s very hilly and highly trafficked. It’s definitely not a route for everyone, but there isn’t a good alternative that doesn’t involve steps and the purpose of the proposed cycling upgrades is to improve safety particularly when riding uphill. Downhill, experienced riders are more comfortable riding with the traffic.
Similar safety improvements were previously made along further sections of this route – Bannerman and Murdock.
There is significant resident concern on the Broughton Road section and Bike North supports further stakeholder workshopping on that area. We do though want immediate focus on improving hillier sections, such a Kurraba Road.
If there is sufficient support for at least part of this project, Council will develop more detailed designs that will take into consideration any issues raised or suggestion made, and then build it. Be assured that Bike North will continue to lobby Council for best possible outcome, so do send us your feedback too.
